In Apple's latest smartphone lineup, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus offer some exciting upgrades compared to their predecessors - iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. They both introduce Dynamic Island technology and improved cameras. However, the main difference between them is their size. Let's compare the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus to help you decide which one suits you best.

Screen Size

The iPhone 15 Plus comes with a larger 6.7-inch display, making it great for watching videos and playing games. Although it lacks the ProMotion 120Hz refresh rate found in the Pro models, its size offers a more immersive experience.
